SURVIVING MENOPAUSE - Specifically the Perimenopause!

Updated: May 4, 2020

Hash tags around the menopause are popping up everywhere, on Twitter, Instagram and I guess Facebook are now having to catch up. The great thing about these is they're creating awareness, and my main area that I'm focusing on is the Perimenopause, for a couple of reasons:

1. The Perimenopause happens typically in your 40s, or your 30s if you're having an early Menopause. I want to raise awareness in women of the symptoms you'll experience at this time

2. The Perimenopause doesn't necessarily have ANY heat symptoms. In Chinese Medicine, they're 'cold' - fatigue, overwhelm, foggy brain, anxiety

3. I get really angry that some GPs tell women they're depressed and try to push them down the route of Anti-depressants

4. I get really angry that some GPs tell women 'Anti-depressants .... this is how we treat menopause symptoms'.

Wrong, Wrong, Wrong!

Treat menopause symptoms with HRT at the very least, if appropriate. Treat symptoms by having the correct information to give women, learn about what the symptoms are and how to resolve them. I'm all about giving women advice on how to treat their symptoms at home and I'm taking this week off to write my 'Online Self Help Guide' which I'm really looking forward to doing and releasing very soon!

In the meantime there are some great campaigns out there trying to raise awareness of symptoms of the Menopause, this poster campaign is from @Pausitivity on twitter, with the hashtag #knowyourmenopause - you can download it here:

AND I have my fantastic bookmarks - you can get a free one here (just pay postage). Keep it in a book, in your bag, follow the tips AND take along to your GP!

Beware Menopause-branded supplements

There is very little scientific backing on most of the supplements that are currently flooding the market at present - you are being sold to; you are being promised that this one pill will solve everything. I look at the ingredients and percentages of all supplements that I'm notified about or come across. Do not believe any menopause expert endorsement; I don't know who these women are.


The menopause experts that I trust don't endorse any of the products I've looked at. Some supplements will help with some symptoms; it's better if the supplement is targeted to a small set of symptoms that are linked; it's more likely to be effective.  They can be a good starting place but over time will become less effective; don't be disheartened it's likely that they don't have enough dosage in for what you now need. I have a Starter Supplement Guide that  explains what you need and why you need it i effective levels to help relieve your symptoms naturally.
